Day #11 - weight same as yesterday and the day before with the exception of Body Fat dropped by 0.5%
Which makes me wonder. I go through everything in my mind for Monday and Sunday that I ate - yes it was all allowedd, right portions, right food, thinking what did I do differently.
By the way, if you're the least bit intersted in this, go to www.hcgdietinfor.com/HCG-Diet-Porotocol.html lots of information there and you can also download Dr. simeons manuscript-the originator of this protocol about 50 years ago. Something I didn't do until this a.m. but should've done I'll admit because with any job well done, preparation is the key!
So, then I remember that you're not supposed to use lotions, makeup-like foundation etc., creams, lipsticks, etc. Well I don't use foundation, but I had used face cream and I checked Burts Bees Lipstick (from my purse) and sure enough it's fill of different kinds of oils.
Also, like I learnt the first time round, you can't only go by your weight number, the % of body fat is quite relevant too. According to my age and height, (different sources) ideally normal weight (BMI-Body Mass Index) is anywhere from 115 - 140 lb and Body Fat percentage around 22%.
http://www.healthstatus.com/calculate/bfb is where you can go if you don't have a scale that displays this.
My scale is made by "Taylor - Body Fat Analyzer & Scale", I think it was only $35/40 a few years ago. It takes a 9 volt battery, you put in your height, age, either normal or athlete settings and can store more than 1 person's info it. I like it. When you step on it (with bare feet), it displays, weight, body fat % and water %. Pretty cool.
Cheers to Your Health,
